A message from The Teachers!
All kids in the congregation from ages 4 to 10 are welcome back in the parish hall during the 10:00 service each week whether they are regular attenders to St. James' or just visiting. Parents of kids under the age of four are encouraged to bring them to the nursery to have fun with activities more suited to their age group.
Last year we gave a new curriculum, “Feasting on the Word”, a try and will be returning to it again this year. It provides the kids with stories, crafts, activities and lessons from both the Old and New Testaments. If anyone has any questions regarding the material, please feel free to speak to either of us.
It is important that each child be registered in the program and we ask that their guardians take a minute to fill out the necessary registration form. This will enable us to recognize birthdays, identify any health concerns, honour requests for the kids' own offering envelopes (which help to offset the costs of buying the curriculum and craft supplies) and if an email address is included, weekly updates on the goings-on in the Sunday School will be provided. The forms are available in the Narthex and can be returned to either of us or deposited in the collection plate. If you've completed a registration form in the past, please do so again, as at the end of each year the contact information, including the email addresses, is destroyed.
Another tradition that continues again this year is that any mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle, or friend is welcome to come back to the hall during Sunday School and have some fun with us too! We have plenty of crayons for everyone to share!
